Happy New Year!

Hey ya'll! I'm still alive and I will try to prove it more often in 2013.
A crazy but good year came to an end yesterday and a great one is about to start. I just know it!

First of all, the biggest reason why I was so quiet:
I am NOT ALONE anymore!!!! Yay!
In August my husband and I changed plans and decided it might be the better solution for us if he moved here to Berlin. And that's what happened. Two weeks ago, 1 day after my birthday I got to pick up my greatest gift ever from the airport: my beloved husband!
Since then we were extremely busy getting the papers done and everything. He is now allowed to stay here and work!

Before he got here I spent a good bit of time making room in my smallish apartment! I do wanna move though a.s.a.p!

Earlier this last year I also decided to give up studying Geology. At that point it was making me rather sick than happy and it felt like the last huge obsticle between me and my husband. What can I say: I havent regretted it since. It felt like it was the long needed change in gears and after that so many puzzle pieces fell into place.

I went to a market in August and since then I've been selling my self-sewn items in my little online shop. I sold quite a bit before christmas and it makes me really happy. Getting a positive feedback from a happy customer is definitely much more satisfying than science!
One of my goals for 2013 is to get my little business going, but my biggest New Year's resolution is
I definitely have reasons to be happy: my husband is here, I have a little business going and I am gonna be an AUNT! Woohoo!
My little sister announced on Christmas Eve she is gonna have a baby and we all know what that means, right?
Lot's of sewing ;-) Haha! Stay tuned for tons of baby things!

I hope you all are gonna have many reasons to be happy, too!

  2. Congrats!! I'm happy for you though I do admit I had hoped you would move to Texas. Better chance for us to meet in person. :)
